Jim Carrey’s drawing of Mark Zuckerberg is a whole lot of yikes
Jim Carrey, comedian turned artist/political critic, tweeted a photo of his portrait of Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday.
Referencing this week’s congressional hearings as a “visit from planet Zuckerberg,” Carrey captioned his painting with this fun dialogue from Zuck: “I shall prevent any further election meddling by destroying the Earth with my Illudium Q-35 Explosive Space Modulator App! The sudden drop in Facebook’s stock has made me angry! VERY ANGRY INDEED!!!”
With its deep eye bags, piercing green eyes, and a mesmerizing background, Carrey’s drawing of Zuck will probably keep you awake at night.

Just look at his unblinking stare.
It’s a reference to Marvin the Martian, a Looney Tunes alien dressed like a Roman warrior who really wanted to destroy planet Earth.
Carrey’s been an outspoken critic of Facebook for its influence in the 2016 presidential election. In February, the actor tweeted another drawing of Zuckerberg (this time, it was significantly more human looking) with the logo “Fakebook.” He announced that he was dumping his Facebook stock and deleting his account, and urged others to do the same.
Carrey’s illustrious career in art picked up a few months ago when he started posting some … intense drawings of conservative politicians. Since then, Carrey’s graced our Twitter feeds with portraits of Trump eating ice cream and playing with his nipples and a graphic image of the president banging a nameless woman with the caption, “Fifty Shades of Decay.”
